Biography

Cassandra Rogers is a PhD student in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment at Monash University. She received a Bachelor of Science from Monash University in 2011 where she majored in Atmospheric Science and Mathematics. She obtained an Honours degree in Geographical Science in 2012 for her thesis "Describing Rainfall in the Northern Territory, Australia: An Investigation into the Potential Usefulness of Multiple Climate Indices", also from Monash University. Cassandra's PhD research uses observational and model data to examine the strength of the urban heat island during heatwave events in several of Australia's major cities. Cassandra's PhD will help to determine whether heat-mitigation strategies would be useful to employ in Australian cities in order to lower urban temperatures during these events.
